Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 'ger ers s LONDON (CP) Supporters of the ecumenical cause arc ex- pressing dismay now that the projected merger of the Church cf England and the Methodists has again failed to win adequate acceptance in the Anglican gen- eral synod. But the Archbishop of Canter- bury, while showing sadness over the setback, has urged ad. vocalos of church unity to re- niain steadfast.. "Although tills has not come said Archbishop Michael Ramsey in a reference to the Anglican-Methodist merger, "there are many signs in all the churches oE the conviction that they must work together as fel- low Christians." The general synod's failure Wednesday to give the unifica- tion plan (lie required 75-per- cent over-all majority is de- scribed by an editorial in the Daily Telegraph as "a sad set- back to the cause of church unity." A total of 34 out of flie 40 voting bishops supported the merger. But CO of the 232 clergy in Ihe synod voted against the proposal as did 87 among the 234 laity present. The project thus won only (55 8 per cent of the votes on an issue which has been a subject of great controversy in the Angli- can church for 25 years. Causing anxiety in some ecu- menical quarters was the ques lion of whether the Wednesd vole would add to skepticism about Chrisliiinily and espe- cially institutionalized Christian- ity. The Guardian refers lo a fear (hat Uie latest evidence of con- tinning church fragmentation "is likely to deter rather than attract a nation held to be largely indifferent to the claim of the Christian religion." Opponents of the unity plan concentrated some of their frill cism on what they considered to be the ambiguity of the pro- posed service of reconciliation which forms part of the merger formula. The Telegraph cited the "strongly-entrenched" group- ings of "high-church" and evan- gelical e 1 e m en t s within the Church of England as one factor in the latest rejection. But some observers saw the vote as a prelude to still more discussions about possible An- glican-Methodist unity. On Ihe other hand, The Daily Express urged an end to the merger attempts. The Wednesday vote should be an end to the matter, the Eeaverbrook paper argues, and the Anglican Church "can now devote all its energies to its main task." This task Is "lo preach the Gospel and forget about fake- over The Express says. Judge condemns VANCOUVER (CP1 A Brit- ish Columbia appeal court judge said yesterday two policemen "sank lo a deplorable depth" by posing as a juslice of (he peace and a bail bondsman to gel evi- dence against a bank robbery suspect. Mr. Justice Angelo Branca condemned Ihe nclions o[ RCMP Spl. Allen James Rich- ards and Constable ,1. D. Birnie as "a new concept in police trickery." The court ordered a new trial for rubbery suspect Jack Robert Pellipicce. Mr. Justice Bianca named Sgt. a policeman for 20 years, as the man who posed BS a bail bondsman. The judge said Constable Birnie, by ar- rangement with Richards, im- personated a justice of the peace and staged fake bail pro- cedures. The judge said the scheme was "the action of irrespnnsihlo policemen totally bankrupt of all ideas of fair play, prepared to stoop to any tactics lo dis- Waffle wing officials rap is charge their duly as policemen and totally ignorant of all those civil liberties or freedoms which one living in our society is enti- tled to, including one's right to the protection of the law." WINS APPEAL Pettipiece won his appeal and was granted a new trial. He was sentenced last June to 12 years in prison for an bank robbery on Annacis Island, in the Fraser Kivcr near New Westminster, in 1370. Chief Justice H. W. Davey said the appeal may lead to new law in Canada to ban evidence I obtained in this way. The ap- peal decision also was sup- ported by Mr. Justice M. M. McFarlane. Mr. Justice Branca said the officer who falsely represented himself to Pelliniece as being a justice of the peace may have himself committed an offence j under the Criminal Code. Said Chief Justice Davcy, who I is chief justice of British Colum- bia as well as of the court of appeal: "If police are to be allowed to secure evidence by this kind of trick, prisoners will be obliged to require proof of the true of- I fice of the person before whom they are brought and proof of the genuineness of the judicial process being used. This would be intolerable." TORONTO (CP) Two lead- ers of the Waffle wing of Ihe New Democratic Party today blasted Stephen Lewis, leader of the Ontario NDP. for his "irra- tional" attacks un their move- ment. Melville WaUtins and James Laxcr fold a news conference Mr. Lev, is has increased ten- sions within the NDP "in a massive if no! way" by impugning the molivcs of Waffle members instead of discussing issues. Mr. Walkins said the NDP is now "in a grave crisis. Ihe most serious of its lO-vear because of Mr. Lewis rind a se- lect group of trade union lead- ers.
